To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble Petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully request:

That the Government's decision to introduce a means test for over-70 pensions be reversed, as it will cause undue hardship and an unreasonable financial burden on a significant percentage of the aged population of Australia.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government will withdraw this legislation.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
